    These days we are told to live good lives through being ethical and moral but not to judge the choices of others and seek to define our own narative. What do believe defines acting ethical or moral towards gay men in your life

    The same thing that governs acting in a moral way toward everyone: honesty, openness, readiness to help or listen, refusing to compel anyone to think or do as I do. If you must judge, you can only do so in relation to the effect that the person's action have on others - destructive? Bad. Helpful? Good.

    Having random accents over the letter 'a' is immoral.

    I believe in order to be moral and ethical you MUST judge the behavior of those you feel are not living in a righteous way.

    Wow! I must have missed the part where they elected you God.

    judging people has nothing to do with being moral.

    i guess it goes hand in hand with being truthful to universal human values. you know, like honesty, loyalty, being considerate to other people, having principles etc

    and one can be moral and ethical without necessarily being religious.

    It means minding your own business and living up to your own standards as defined by your core values.

    Being honest--it's the ethical thing to do in any type of relationship. If you want a FWB, say that up front. If you want to be monogamous, say it and then be it. If you're going open or poly, set the "rules" and stick to them or make mutually agreed upon amendments. Honesty demonstrates respect and love.

    Well said that's my understanding too nut a lot of gay men seem to equate judgemental religious dogma with being moral and reject the idea of acting ethically (not hurt others with intent) or morally (acting with the the primary focus of the interests of the relationship instead of self gratification). Most are so caught up by acting against the perceived forced mores of their childhood and justify it with persecution in childhood stories

    In a relationship, keep to the commitments you have made to one another. If doing so doesn't make you happy, then have open communication with your partner about whether the terms of the relationship need to be renegotiated or, sadly, whether the relationship itself may have reached the end of its natural life.

    With someone with whom you are not in a committed relationship, interact with one another with a view that each of you are created in the image of God. Or, if religious metaphors don't work for you, interact with one another with a view that each of you are deserving of dignity and respect.

    The specifics about how this all relates to sexuality will vary. One size doesn't fit all.
